Pera Museum appeals to art lovers and history enthusiasts with two new exhibitions. These two exhibitions, "From the Right Place: History of the Panoramic View of Istanbul" and "Memories of the Future", are waiting for their visitors until March 24, 2024.

Pera Museum hosts two exhibitions that invite you to explore both the panoramas of Istanbul and the ceramic heritage of Kütahya. The museum expects to host history and art enthusiasts with wide visiting hours and special events.

Offering a panoramic perspective on the rich history of Istanbul, the exhibition "From the Right Place: The History of the Panoramic View of Istanbul" will host its visitors from October 26, 2023 to March 24, 2024, in cooperation with Pera Museum and Istanbul Research Institute. This exhibition presents historical sections of Istanbul, from fire disasters to industrial transformation, with panoramic images from different periods.

The "Memories of the Future" exhibition, which was open to visitors during the same period, was created with inspiration from the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Kütahya Tiles and Ceramics Collection. The exhibition aims to examine the texture of memory by bringing together objects of the past and memories of the future.


Organized by Pera Museum and Istanbul Research Institute. The exhibition examines the 500-year history of panoramic representation of Istanbul. The exhibition covers a period from the 15th century to the 20th century; It shows how the panoramas of Istanbul were used in different periods by bringing together the works of artists such as Seutter, Merian, Feraud, Barker, Gudenus, Schranz, Melling, Dunn and Robertson.

The exhibition, curated by Çiğdem Kafescioğlu, K. Mehmet Kentel and M. Baha Tanman, examines the production, consumption and dissemination processes of panoramic images of Istanbul.

Right from the Place: The History of the Panoramic View of Istanbul This work, which observes Istanbul from the Galata Tower, was the main element that inspired the exhibition. In the exhibition, an interactive digital experience area was created around this panoramic work, focusing on a 360-degree historical city view.


Another exhibition, "Memories of the Future", was inspired by the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Kütahya Tiles and Ceramics Collection. “Can the future be remembered through familiar objects accumulated in the past? "Could shaping memories that emerge piece by piece in the future be a tool that makes it easier to understand and preserve the past?" Ulya Soley was the curator of the exhibition, which was based on these questions. The exhibition aims to explore how memory and future imaginations come together.

The exhibition consists of four main sections: “What Motifs Remind Us,” “Memory of Objects,” “Memory of the Region,” and “Remembering the Future.”

Designed by Yelta Köm and Elif Tan from Studio No Frame; The exhibition, whose graphic and catalog design is undertaken by Esen Karol, will be open to visitors until March 24, 2024.
